Genes responsible for difference in flower color of snapdragons identified
Barton's group and now Assistant Professor at the University of Vienna, collaborated with molecular geneticists at the John Innes Center in Norwich to investigate the causes of this pattern. Writing in today's edition of PNAS, the scientists report that they identified the genes responsible for flower color difference from DNA sequence data.
"DNA sequencing is becoming cheaper and cheaper. But analyzing sequence data and interpreting the patterns seen is very hard," Nick Barton explains, "In this study, we used sequence data from Antirrhinum plants to locate the individual genes which are responsible for the difference in flower color across the hybrid zone." The researchers compared the genome sequence of 50 snapdragons of each color, and measured how much the sequences diverged between magenta and yellow snapdragon populations. By plotting a statistical measure of divergence between the two populations, they found "islands" in the genome which are more divergent between yellow and magenta snapdragons than the rest of the genome. In the snapdragons, these islands correspond to genes responsible for flower color. The recent paper focuses on two of those genes, which determine the magenta pigment, and are located close together on the genome.
How the sharp difference between yellow and magenta populations is maintained was the subject of the PhD thesis by Tom Ellis in Nick Barton's lab. Through observations both in the field and in experiments at IST Austria, he found that bees prefer to pollinate the most common color flowers in a population: in magenta populations, bees mostly pollinate magenta flowers, in yellow populations, bees mostly pollinate yellow flowers. This selection in favour of the commonest type keeps the hybrid zone sharp, and prevents exchange of genes that are linked to the flower color genes.
In the current study, the researchers wanted to know ... Jul 27, 2017

Valentine's Day celebrations take many forms
Branigan celebrated by making dinner together. The twosome is approaching their year-and-a-half anniversary.Like the Mowrises, Erin Collins of Norwich and her husband, Kevin, tend to mark Feb. 14 with a trip to a restaurant. Parents to two small children, Erin Collins said, “We usually just go out to dinner, which we only do a couple of times a year, so we do try to get it in.”Collins, a chocolate lover, said that, while she enjoys the box of sweets her husband gets her annually, she has had to think creatively where her other half is concerned. “He doesn’t like chocolate,” she said. “But he does like craft beer.” Collins said she will likely go to Price Chopper, where ale enthusiasts can mix-and-match a six-pack of different craft beers. “That way, he gets to try some he might not otherwise pick,” she said. “I’ll stick a heart on that and call it good.”The Collinses have been together 20 years and will mark their tenth wedding anniversary this summer.And, with a 34-year marriage to their credit, Nancy McLean of Sidney said that when it comes to her and husband, Scott, “We don’t do anything. We’re lucky if we remember to buy each other a card.”... (Oneonta Daily Star)Nov 9, 2016
Teenager hanged herself after watching Channel 4 series Flowers
Flowers, a six part series starring Olivia Colman.
McDonald’s staff turn on ‘racist’ customer outside restaurant
The inquest in Norwich heard how the teenager had become ‘upset and emotional’ after watching the series, in which a character tries unsuccessfully to kill himself in the opening scenes.
The ‘highly intelligent’ teenager had a history of depression and had tried to kill herself before, the inquest heard.
Her friend, Hannah Rice, said in a statement the pair had watched the last episode of Flowers together.
She said: ‘At the beginning of the week long series, a character tried to hang himself, but by the end of the week he was happier.
But she added that they had both been left ‘upset and emotional’ by the programme which dealt with ‘issues around suicide and depression’ and had hugged each other before going to bed.
Rebecca was found hanging in her room at Britten House at Gresham’s School when staff went to wake her up at 7.30am on April 30.
Julie Simms, matron, said she hadn’t noticed any difference in Rebecca’s behaviour describing her as ‘a typical teenager who felt life was unfair, but had a sense of humour and would have a laugh.’
The inquest heard how Rebecca had been referred to mental health services from the school’s medical centre.
The 18-year-old, who lived with her mother Patsy Haley in Barking, near Stowmarket, had a history of self-harming and taking medication for depression.

Reisman: A Fading Memorial Day memory
Mamaroneck High School. Ambeman still has his uncle’s Varsity letter and MHS yearbook.
Cargill, who was bound for Norwich College, volunteered for the Army Air Force when the war broke out. After training at various air bases around the country, he was transferred to England to join the 8th Air Force and assigned to the 490th Bomb Group, 851st Squadron. He was a second lieutenant and a co-pilot.
Cargill was killed in his 11th mission. Flying over Munich, “a tiny piece of flak hit him in the neck and killed him instantly,” his nephew said.
He is buried in the Lorraine American Cemetery in St. Avold, France.
“We still have flowers put on his grave, so he’s not completely forgotten,” Amberman said.
During the Korean War, John Cargill joined the air force after his parents signed a waiver. He became a navigator/observer and served on jet bombers.
In January, 1955, he was aboard a B-57B that crashed outside of Randolph Air Force Base in Texas.
Nine months later, Cargill Park was dedicated.
“Soon afterward, my grandfather decided it was time to retire and move out near us,” Amberman said. “My grandmother, as you can imagine, was really affected.”
Eventually, the Cargills moved to Pompano Beach, Florida. They are buried in Port Washington, New York, “along with Uncle Johnny,” Amberman said.
“So now you have the whole Cargill story,” he said. “It’s too bad the park is no longer Cargill Park, but things change.”
